Salami and Cream Cheese Roll Ups

Salami and Cream Cheese Roll Ups are a simple two-ingredient appetizer perfect for any party or gathering where you need a simple but tasty side dish. There’s a great Amish Market/Flea Market near my house that has some of the best foods I’ve ever tasted. From soft pretzels stuffed with […]

Thanksgiving Tacos

Back in September, my friend Jenn and I took a very unplanned trip to the beach over Labor Day weekend. We both love the beach but didn’t have any plans to go down for the holiday weekend, because traffic is usually a nightmare. But then Jenn posted some image about […]

Sage Turkey Meatballs with Cranberry Dipping Sauce

I love sage. Fresh or dried, it’s one of my favorite herbs and I love using it in nearly all of my recipes for Thanksgiving. I tend to go really heavy on the sage in recipes because I think it adds such a great flavor. Fortunately, my family doesn’t seem […]

Cranberry Baked Brie

I used to hate brie cheese. I thought it smelled horrendous and couldn’t even think of spreading it on a cracker to enjoy. Then a friend and I started frequenting a restaurant that served brie as part of their cheese board. I tried it again and completely fell in love. […]

The only recipes I could think of was meatloaf, which we’re not big fans of, or cheeseburgers, which […]

#BakingBloggers: Ham and Cheddar Pretzel Calzones

The March theme for #BakingBloggers is calzones. I don’t think I ever ate a calzone until I met Tom. My mom never made them and if we ordered food out, it was either pizza or cheese steaks. Obviously, I’ve now had quite a few calzones over the past few years […]

#ImprovCookingChallenge: Philly Cheesesteak Twice Baked Potatoes

This month’s theme for theĀ Improv Cooking Challenge is steak and potatoes and for some reason, those two ingredients really stumped me. We eat steak and potatoes pretty frequently, but that didn’t seem anywhere near creative enough to share with you. It took until the weekend before this recipe was to […]
